In a conversation with Forbes Middle East, IBM’s general manager for Middle East and Africa Takreem El-Tohamy speaks about how he is planning to capitalize on the data-centric economy by investing in everything around data. One of the key areas that El-Tohamy is focusing on is ethics in artificial intelligence – an aspect that is often neglected by many in the race to harvest data.
